She's not quite an exec, she's just head of copy. The shot was probably set up to contrast what she said in the movie theatre to Don (being flown out to Virginia on a private plane, etc.) as to her expectations about moving on up on the career rung.

Who else was sure that it the heavy breathing over the phone was Glen masturbating?

Pete's character CAN be complex, but (aside from this episode), that's now how they've written him for most of this season. I always liked his character, but lately he's pretty much just been a two-dimensional prick. This episode added more flavor to him...now let's see if Weiner keeps it up.

I thought it was funny and intended to be so. I loved her momentary reaction. I'm not so sure she'd had a fling; I agree with the statement that she was probably in Richmond for the tour (thus a demonstration of her moving on from SCDP).

The last two episodes have been very enjoyable. The first two made me think the show had lost it's appeal. But, I'm reeled in.

I love it when Pete is creepy, or gets punched.

Hadn't occurred to me. I thought it might be some stalker from some of Megan's auditions. When it turned out to be Roger calling to talk to Megan's mom, I almost fell over laughing. His impersonation of Megan's father was priceless.

Ahh, missed that little part. People need to not talk to me when Mad Men is on.

Yeah I was assuming it was some creepster "now turn around please" guy from an audition.

As I said earlier Roger's, "What's Regina?" line was priceless...particularly if you're not American.

Thats what she said.

Yeah, I laughed. My youngest daughter -- who watched the show with me for the first time last night -- thought he'd said something else.

Speaking of the kids, when they posted the brief nudity warning, I said to my girls "Watch, it'll probably be John Hamm's butt." I was close.

See, this is where local knowledge does you no favors.

I, too, thought the heavy breather was Glen and said as much to my wife when we were watching. Roger was better.

Still. Any business traveler from NYC would not have blinked at whatever The Jefferson cost in those days. Plus, there's nowhere to stay at all over by the PM plant.

She said "I get to fly on a plane" - nothing about a private plane.

Whatever. I'll accept that Weiner had a story reason for putting her in a dump from which humping stray dogs in a parking lot are visible from the rooms.

Of everything that happened last night, the part I thought was the most fascinating was the very short interaction between Don and Lane's wife. She obviously blamed Draper and others for leading Pryce into a world he wasn't suited for. I suppose she thought Lane was more at home being shit on by the higher ups at PPL.

Indeed. She probably got a rude shock when she found out she wasn't as wealthy as she thought she was and that her husband had a wandering eye.

I think the story is that she's happy for the first time in a while. She finally feels like she's made it, despite the fact that the place is a dump.

 

And in stark contrast, Don and Pete seem to have everything, yet their soul still aches.
